Assembling the product
The Ewbank VC600 4 can be used as a handheld vacuum cleaner and as an upright stick-vac. Floor brush and crevice tool accessories can be added by inserting the required accessory into the waste chamber inlet. Simply insert the accessory in a straight line into the waste chamber inlet. We recommend a light spray of polish or other lubricant spray into the inlet of the waste chamber to make this easier. Do not twist either the Ewbank VC600 or the accessory while inserting or removing an accessory.
The extension handle can be added to convert the Ewbank VC600 to a stick vacuum.
The handle and extension wand are delivered disconnected inside the product packaging. To assemble the extension handle, pull the pin from the handle by unscrewing it until it comes away completely. Next fit the handle onto the shaft so that the holes in the shaft match the holes on the handle. Ensure the single hole on the other end faces forwards. Attach the hook and screw the pin all the way in.
To attach the extension handle to the body of the VC600, hold the vac body by its handle and push the extension handle into the body (Fig. 2). Push the handle in until an audible “click” is heard. To remove the handle, fully depress button ‘A’ on the top of the unit and pull the handle out of the hole, releasing the button once the handle is clear of the unit.
To remove, pull out in a straight line.

Important Care Advice
The VC600 is a powerful highly efficient, yet lightweight and portable vacuum cleaner. The powerful suction will remove the smallest particles of dust and dirt from your carpets and upholstery. To prevent the unit from overheating and to maintain the efficiency of the VC600 the filter MUST BE cleaned regularly. The waste chamber is transparent to enable you to see accumulated dirt and debris. When this happens the efficiency of the motor unit is reduced and the waste chamber must be emptied and the filter assembly cleaned. A blocked filter will restrict airflow to the motor which can start overheating. This will become apparent as the noise of the motor will become higher pitch. If this happens stop the unit and then clean the filter. As a safety precaution the motor is designed to cut out in the event of overheating. Please allow the unit to cool sufficiently for up to one hour before restarting.
Emptying the waste chamber and caring for your filter
Disconnect the VC600 from the power socket outlet and remove any accessory attached to the unit. Depress the waste chamber release button B. While holding the release button, separate the chamber from the main body. Remove the prefilter and filter body from the chamber and empty the waste from the chamber. The chamber can be rinsed out with warm (not hot) soapy water if necessary. Ensure that the chamber is dry before re-assembly.
Filter cleaning – we recommend the filter and prefilter are checked and cleaned each time the waste chamber is emptied.
The VC600 filter has 2 separate parts, an outer prefilter foam which fits over the pleated filter. The pre-filter will collect larger particles and prevent these from becoming lodged in the grooves of the pleated filter. Clean regularly.
To clean the filter separate the two parts, pulling the foam pre-filter off, then gently shake, tap or brush the pleated filter to remove dust particles and debris from the grooves. The outer prefilter can be brushed and tapped to remove debris around the filter.
All parts of the filter assembly are suitable for gentle washing in warm (not hot) water. Do not use detergent. Allow to dry naturally for 24 hours before refitting to the VC600. Ensure all parts have fully dried before reassembly.
Only use the VC600with both parts of the filter assembly in place.
